White Horse Inn Streaming Internet Radio interviews Two RC Reps
Ratio Christi's International Director Tyler Geffeny and our Chapter Director Conor Anderson at UC San Diego were interviewed at White Horse Inn Radio by host Mike Horton. Horton established WHI more than twenty years ago in regular radio and it is now a very popular streaming Christian conservative program that airs each Sunday. This October 2016 discussion is a "must listen" for parents, grandparents, clergy, and church members about the dangerous intolerence on college campuses toward students with biblical worldview, and how difficult it is for our kids - and Christian professors, too - to maintain their faith amidst recurring secular contradictions and accusations.
PJ Media, Popular Online News Digest, Highlights Ratio Christi
Reporter and Assistant Editor of PJ Media, Tyler O’Neil, interviewed RC President Corey Miller and Professor Carol Swain for this popular online news magazine. Swain, a conservative professor at Vanderbilt University, was coming up as our Annual Symposium Keynote Speaker ten days after the interview. Discussed were intolerance toward Christian free speech on campus, the seeping in of Marxist socialism which is stopping free critical thinking, and more concerns for today’s college students and professors. This excellent October 6, 2016 interview can be read here: “6 Ways Christians Can Fight the 'Cultural Marxism' on College Campuses.”
UPDATE: O'Neil became so interested in our ministry that he came to the Symposium and video-interviewed Dr. Swain, several students, and more RC leaders.

RC's Traveling Historic Scroll makes International News
In February of 2016, a generous benefactor bequeathed an Old Testament Scroll from circa 1750 to Ratio Christi. Our Vice President of Operations Michael Bossman travels to churches and universities with this portion of the Hebrew Torah as an example of historical evidence for Biblical accuracy. With an upcoming scroll appearance at the University of Mobile in Alabama in September 2016, the school's news digest published an article about the scroll.
This news was then picked up and covered in an article at Breaking Israel News, an online news magazine all the way in Israel which writes from a perspective complimentary to both Christian and Jewish worldviews. The scroll is described, including photos, and Bossman is quoted in both pieces.
UPDATE: Three days later, news of the scroll coming to U of Mobile showed up in The Press-Register, a newspaper serving southwest Alabama. It is one of Alabama's oldest newspapers.
